Standard Bank Business Breakfast 2017 in association with Smile 90.4FM at the Cape Town Convention Centre
Thursday, October 12, 2017
This year will see Smile 90.4FM partnering with South Africa’s largest financial services group to bring you the Standard Bank Business Breakfast 2017 at the Cape Town Convention Centre on Thursday, 12 October 2017. Key note speakers Anant Singh, Dion Chang and Nick Mallett will keep guests captivated with their stories of inspiration and motivation – challenging attendees to ask themselves “What’s Your Next?” Whether it’s as big as starting a new business or as small as changing your POS system, Standard Bank is all about enabling nexts; and no two nexts are the same. Meet the speakers: Anant Singh is recognised as South Africa’s pre-eminent film producer, having produced more than 80 films since 1984. Singh is the producer of “Yesterday”, which received South Africa’s first Academy Award Nomination in the Best Foreign Language Picture category in 2005, the Peabody Award and an Emmy Nomination in 2006 in the “Outstanding Made for Television Movie” category. Nelson Mandela called him “a producer I respect very much…a man of tremendous ability” when he granted him the film rights to his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom. Dion Chang is an innovator, creative thinker and walking ideas bank. He is one of South Africa’s most respected trend analysts and takes the unique view of “trends as business strategy”. While his feet remain firmly planted on African soil, he uses a global perspective to gauge the zeitgeist, source ahead-of-the-curve concepts and identify shifting business templates. In a world struggling to adapt to a new world order, his trends analysis company – Flux Trends – specializes in understanding consumer mind-set and identifying unexpected business opportunities within shifting trends, ensuring that global trends have relevance when translated for South African businesses. Nick Mallett is a Tri-Nations-winning former Springbok coach and Italian coach. He has been a SuperSport rugby analyst since 2012 and won an SAB TV award when he was voted the best sports analyst on TV in 2013. Between August 1997 and December 1998, under Nick’s guidance, the Springboks went on a record winning streak of 17 consecutive test wins. Nick remains one of South Africa’s most successful coaches ever, having won 27 of the 38 tests played under his guidance and rewriting the record books several times. Standard Bank Business Breakfast Series in proud association with Smile 90.4FM aims to foster inspiration and motivation, whilst provoking conversations that matter.
